This here site has been nominated1 for Best Humour Blog2 in the 2008 Canadian Blog Awards,3 and I would particularly like to win the award, on the basis of I have not won any awards since I played kiddie league soccer and even then I never got to be a forward but instead always got stuck as a defensive midfielder, which if you know kiddie league soccer is the equivalent of deep right field.
So please go and vote for my blog! Assuming I make it to the later rounds I will probably beg you all to vote again, which I am sure you will appreciate deeply. As additional incentive, I will leave this post open for comments from people who vote, and anybody who wants me to weigh in on a topic may request a post on the topic of their choice.4
EDIT TO UPDATE: Looking at my competition, there’s a bunch of personal blogs that smack of “my friend thinks I’m funny,” a couple of political blogs known for being snarky and sarcastic, one or two other blogs that actually genuinely try to write funny things on a regular basis, and Raymi the Minx, who I believe is in this category on the basis that her blog is unintentionally funny. So if I don’t win, I promise to throw a massive tantrum and send you all rotten eggs in the mail. You have been warned!

- Which finally answers the question of “what category this blog goes in for blog awards.” I would have given myself a nomination in Best Miscellaneous Blog, but they don’t have that one. [↩]
- AKA “The Juno Awards of blog awards,” assuming you know what the Juno Awards are; you may not [↩]
- Which in no way means I’m guaranteeing that I’ll write about it, but I will at least promise to consider it, and that is nearly as good. [↩]
